Vincent's baby coming atcha - Brucie has properly horrible flu - Tess is front of house on Saturday and Claudia is helping out! Woohoo! I mean, get well soon, Bruce!
Ricalie on the sofa talking tango failure, the general consensus is they just got carried away in the moment, enjoying it too much and can't say whose fault it was! Ricky (Hunk of the Month) loved it a lot, Nat (Aussie rules) isn't going to hold back on the choreography, she'll keep pushing him. The other couples are full of RickyWitter: Oh Ricky, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind: Hey Ricky! He's equally generous back. The jive is a rapid, very funky looking jive.
Friday Panel - Katherine Jenkins (Knows the score) tapes the show if out on a Saturday, Vinalie her faves; Miranda (Harts Strictly) asks KJ: "Why would you go out on a Saturday?" and wants Sir Ian Waite as her partner. She had a Blackpool party, and she'll have a Final party! Craig (He's a Revel-ation) anticipates and expects certain levels of performance but goes into Saturday with a fresh view and hopes each couple do their best.
Phitya - nerveless, looking rather lovely, great sense of musicality, splayed hands though but dancing to Sinatra Come Fly With Me. Perfect, classic and KJ tells us Sinatra has been used five times and scores quite highly. MH says "he's better in hold whatever that means!"
Chrola look amazing, completely and utterly in character, purpose, intent - dancing to I Believe in a Thing Called Love by The Darkness. Unusual but Justin Hawkins is a fan of catsuits - ergo - Chris is wearing a catsuit!
Ianade looking great, going to be fantastic, poise, adornments - dancing to Duran Duran A View to a Kill - strong, fiery song may dominate or be a driving force!
Vinalie needs to work on technique but terrific song - Magic Moments Perry Como - genius, cheesy and comic Italian American. They're all swaying; Miranda wants to trap Nat and make her her best friend for life!
Lainton - she still seems terrified but doing a good job getting the 4.1 nature of the rumba (???) Fantastic song choice (my song choice for the rumba!) Rule the World by Take That. Alian and Craig is loving Brian's amalgamations. I bet he's not the only one. The Black Eyed Peas I Got a Feeling. Like I said ...
Claudia is off to the studio, we find out what Strictly has taught the celebs: Belief; application; focus; teamwork; trust; push through barriers; confidence; dancing!
Matador Man: Chris outside practising capework, introduces us to his lucky toilet. Thanks. Backstage congregation area, where they leave to rush the floor for hugs. Rickin VW us out to Nights in White Satin, lovely choice, haunting. Chris and Claudia are swaying!
